“I never realized how beautiful my vitiligo was until I traced it with a black marker,” she told the Daily Mail. “It really helps to bring out the different colors of my skin. I was always trying to find a way to look at my skin in a positive light, [and] I couldn’t do that before starting this. Now what others would perceive as an imperfection, I have made into something more beautiful and made it more accepted than before.”
Ashley says she’s been able to connect with so many people dealing with vitiglio through her social media accounts, and is even thinking of starting her own YouTube channel to inspire others to share their stories.
That’s a body positive movement we can totally get behind.
